Everyman's Guide: An ERIC Search System for Social Studies Teachers, Consultants, and Librarians.
Ervin, Sharon B.
This book illustrates a five phase technique for searching any of the abstract publications of the Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC), in particular Research in Education (RIE) and the Current Index to Journals in Education (CIJE). It is a self-instruction tool that can be used by "Everyman" who has a problem or information need within the realm of education, and who wishes to learn to maximize his literature searching effort through some shortcuts that simulate a computer search system. The five phases are: 1) formulating the problem statement; 2) using the ERIC Thesaurus or authority list of index terms; 3) searching the subject indexes; 4) reviewing the document resumes which contain bibliographic information, index terms, an abstract, and ordering information; and, 5) directions on where to find the ERIC Documents or how to order them. Subscription information for the monthly issues of RIE, CIJE, the annual cumulations, and the microfiche collection of documents is included, along with a list of other guides to using ERIC. (Author)
